A Normal Person probably said something that wasn't marching in lockstep with The Narrative, and Flatticus is either trying to prompt the mob to work up his otherwise non-existant courage, or trying to rile the mob to engage in violence for him.

It's not nice to talk about Robert O'Rourke that way.

Dunno. Maybe Flatus is doing de rigueur generic Texas-bashing. Or maybe he's doing the old school-boy sing-song, I know something you don't know."

In some states there is a "Use of Fighting Words" affirmative defense to a charge of Simple Battery/Battery or Affray (Fighting).  While IANAL, the basic premise is if someone makes a vulgar comment that would incite a "reasonable person", there is a justification to throw one unarmed punch.
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.
